HIS IceQ4 HD4850 TurboX & Club3d HD4850 O

On First Page2. HIS IceQ4 HD4850


Introduction

2008 has been a fantastic year for AMD. We’ve seen them release a portfolio of great cards with extremely competitive pricing to challenge Nvidia. The 4850 has been one of their most successful cards, with its combined price to performance ratio capturing the hearts of many consumers. One of the most documented issues with these cards however are the running temperatures, especially when overclocked. These cores can get hot with the reference heatsink which can raise temperatures inside a chassis.

Fortunately, for those who do not wish to void their warranty by replacing their heatsink, AMD’s partners have been busy producing overclocked cards with custom cooling solutions to deal with the aforementioned problems. Today we’re going to look at two of those offerings, the HIS 4850 IceQ 4 and the Club3d 4850 Overclocked Edition.
